is here. what do you want from these town halls? what is the point? you will hear from rush limbaugh coming up. there is a new information regarding pakistani terrorists. henry kissinger goes on the record. the town hall process continues. >> [unintelligible] >> it triples premiums. >> stand up and fight. we woke vote -- we will vote you out. [unintelligible] [applause] >> it got a little bit rough these days. next question. he did not answer it. he taught in circles. >> people come to town meetings who have objections. i emphasize that they may not be representative of america. their views have to be taken into account. >> there is some disagreement. >> how are we supposed trust you? is there an option to say no to this bill? >> it is not about health care reform or insurance reform. it is about government control. >> i charge you with usurping authority not granted to you as a u.s. senator. >greta: houston, texas a councilwoman answers a cell phone while a cancer survivor asks her a question. >> if you're conscious allows you, what are you doing for america -- >> seriously, really.
-- have you done anything on rush limbaugh? he can say anything and his limbaughites -- everything he says. please, elaborate on him so that the listening audience can see where he is really coming from. thank you. i will hang up and listen. guest: great questions. we have indeed looked at several clips rachel maddow has made. i think we have done for ray and i think one was a false and maybe two others that were more in the true range. we have a range on the meter from true to false. true, mostly true, half true, barely true, false, and pants on fire. so she has a mixed record. rush limbaugh -- and you can check this by going to our site -- one of the things we did is allow you to look at someone's record so you can look at rush limbaugh on our site, click on the people and then click on his name and you can see his record, how many true, half true, etc. come. host: according, he has been true once, barely true twice, and false ones. guest: that is a mixed record. it also is a function -- we have only begun doing the talk show host and the pundits. so we are not looking at a large sample,
it is washington in the traditional sense. rush limbaugh lives in florida and you would think that he had some elected or pointed position within the republican party. tavis: but it is partisan politics. >> some of it is partisan politics and i understand partisan politics. i do not understand racist comments. what is very having the nobody seems to remember now what justice wrote in the dred scott decision. he wrote a black man has no right that a white man is bound to respect. this is the chief justice of the united states sprem court. supreme court. people seem to have forgotten that. that distinguished judges like bran dice and benjamin cardoza, distinguished in the law, did not always vote in spore of equality for people that were not white people. tavis: there is one thing i want to get to. we referenced president obama a couple of times in this conversation. how do you think he is doing overall? >> i give him an a for leadership. tavis: yeah. >> and it is still an unbelievable -- it's incredulous, still. i grew up -- i was born in 1935 in atlanta, georgia. and i remember the 1943 gubern
limbaugh, all these people saying the birthers are out of their mind. kind of interesting. we'll see what happens. willie geist, i swear you have made broadcasting history again. >> barnacle sits over here during way too early, which is distracting enough in its own right, but he's critiquing the show as it goes. telling me, no good, i won't make it. >> joe and i realize we can say we are here at the beginning exactly. it's like being present when milton beryl came out. >> or the big bang. >> a big story, bill clinton touching down. we begin with breaking news. former president bill clinton is in north korea on behalf of the obama administration. he's trying to negotiate the release of those two jailed american journalists. reporters euna lee and laura ling sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for illegally crossing the border. adrian joins us live from beijing -- she's not with us right now. we'll try to get back to her. pat buchanan, let me ask you. what do you think is going on here. can you remember a precedent for something like this? >> i think jimmy carter -- jesse jacks
, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
's being orchestrated by the republican party's other than like fox news and people like rush limbaugh. >> do you know that or do you just believe that? >> this is obvious. >> how is it obvious? >> every day -- fox doesn't tell people you have to do this or that. >> but -- >> but they are putting out the message to the people the birth conspiracy -- >> what does that have to do with health care? >> all of these people are coming together and a coalition of pranks who have created this. >> what did we learn in civil protest? we learned it from you guys. >> what is going on here is the republican party is losing control of its own base. >> oh, please! come on! >> the republican party have all of these different lpts fighting about control of the party. >> you people on the left have lost control of the people what they care about. >> let me ask both of you a question. i disagree. i think everybody understands what people care about which they feel like they want work in a fair system and their voice can be heard and basically is there a level playing field. whether it's on et left or the
rush limbaugh and everybody else tried to destroy john mccain. i didn't want john mccain to win the nomination because i didn't think he was conservative enough. guess what, john mccain won the nomination anyway. playing to the hard, hard, hard right base will not win primaries. don't you agree. >> look, i agree -- i think palin could get into finals. i basically agree with this but look at this. the red hot radio stuff. look where the country is, three of the top four best selling books on the "new york times" list, mark levin, dick morris, number one best seller on the paper back, glen beck, orielle number ten there. the country is in an angry populist mood. the bumper stickers, death panels, it's not sophisticated, but i'll tell you what is igniting these people, they have simple ideas and they are angry. >> sure, pat. the same thing igniting people on the left that said there was no god. you can read in 2003, 2004, god is dead. the god delusion, all a reaction to george w. bush, it's very natural. it will sell books, drive up ratings. it will not win elections. willie, we've
is the president of as well. how many republicans are going to say, ok, rush limbaugh, you have to get over this because he is reaching out. host: are you supporting the public option? caller: honestly, i do not understand the public option. if it makes sense, we should try a, a public option or cooperative. -- we should try it, public option or cooperative. host: thank you. next caller. caller: i worked for the post office, our insurance -- we had every time that we wanted to pick from. we chose ourselves from all over the country. i do not see why we cannot have that now for everybody. host: next call from michigan on the independent line. good morning. what do you think about president barack obama? is he compromising too much? caller: i think that have a unique perspective on this situation. i am a health care provider that happens to own his own business. i have a daughter with a pre- existing condition. i also have first-time knowledge of the single payer run system in ireland. i think that the system out there does the most to decrease the prices in health insurance, and i will leave
stupid. we can talk with the other fat one, that rush limbaugh, and not to mention mostly all the people that get up there and carry on are from the south. they are ignorant, they have no teeth, they have no brains, and i'm so ashamed of them. i am so glad i do not live in the south. thank you. host: barbara? barbara's gone. in "the washington post" this morning grassley is the talk of town halls. this is by perry bacon who writes about the town hall meetings of senator charles grassley, the ranking member in the senate finance committee. "conservative activists mobilized early sending urgent e-mail alerts asking republicans to show up at meetings." some iowans, explained someone who strongly opposes the health care reform effort wonders if grassley is wandering off the reservation. curt, what's on your mind this morning? caller: thank god for c-span. i want to talk about the health care system. i am an immigrant. and since i come here, my wife have insurance. i don't use it, because i don't normally get sick, but she uses it a lot. man, i'm telling you, the bills are -- they are so craz
yesterday was asked -- most of those questions come from r ush limbaugh and others like an. she was his plan and others with her that they work mis informed -- this is not even in the bill. then, when he answered that question for them instead of them listening they were screaming and hollering. how can in would have a discussion if they do not listen to one another's opinions? host: on the republican line from philadelphia. caller: you do a great job, young lady. my comment is about the history of recession. the democrats created the first recession in 1937. there was a tariff act from 1890 that was signed into law by president harrison. the act included among other items, taxing opium and marijuana at $10 per pound. you have the fbi in the 1930's who created so much propaganda against people who believe these things who believe these things should not exist anymore, going up to the prohibition. i am a muslim who supported over cleveland twice. we will continue to boycott any body who wants to be like ronald reagan. thank you. host: today in "the usa today" they note that president obama wi
that rush limbaugh made the other day about the democratic party and nazis -- every point he made with either misleading or false. we need a strong republican party to keep democrats in line. if we do not have a sensible republican party, we will get the opposite of what we had during the bush administration. that is where the democratic party failed to exercise their checks and balance responsibilities. it is the
is getting anything out of this debate right now except maybe rush limbaugh and sean hannity. they make millions of dollars a week, you know, just keeping this disaster going, this division. but actually, i am educated as well as a lot of people out here listening. and when i look for a bill, what is my money going for? i want it to be a republican bill versus a democratic bill, and discuss the issues rather than just making up -- i do not know. host: are you getting -- are you paying attention to all the back and forth from "hardball" to cnn to glenn beck? caller: yes, but i do not appreciate it because i do not know what bill they are talking about. we have three different bills, and so far as a republican i see that we do not have a bill. so what are we talking about? host: the three bills on the house side are -with the house ways and means, on the senate side is the health, education, and labor committee. there is no final bill yet until sometime in the fall. the president indicating that that vote could come in november or even into december. the front page of "the washington time
they are basically racist, they listened three hours a day to their leader, the fact, drug addicted rush limbaugh, and i am very concerned about heard they show up with ak-47's because that "is their right." they want this president to not only heard but they want him gone, and if you know what gone means you get my drift because they are never, ever going to give him leeway. and a republican who calls before me, they are very few and far between and as far as joe mceachern, the inbred in georgia, he calls in all the time, he is one of the radicals about taking the country back. what have they lost with him and the white house? please, have them call in and tell me. host: on page a3 of "the washington post" this morning, white house backs rights arms outside obama events. robert gates, white house press secretary said people are entitled to carry weapons outside such events if local law allowing "there are laws that govern firearms better done state or locally," he said. "those laws don't change when the present comes to your state or locality." caller: did they do it before? this is a sign to ob
to the "playbook" when the white house appointed rush limbaugh as the republican chief spokesman. we're going to hear them trying to make republicans own what's going on or be blamed for what's going on in these town meetings. today the democratic national committee is out with an ad talking about angry mobs and very interesting for the first time the democratic party taking on, including a democratic web video which will surely be a cable ad. they're including that clip we've seen here on "morning joe" of those in the town meeting, an e-mail urging supporters to turn out today for vice president biden in new york, talking about angry mobs. so the idea is to either expose or caricature, depending on where you sit, what's going on in these groups that are fighting back. some of them encouraged by conservative groups, business groups. some of it probably genuine. >> mike, you mentioned the ad. let's watch a piece of that and show people what you're talking about. >> the right wing extremists. they lost the election. they lost on 0 the recovery act, the budget and children's health care. they've
rush limbaugh. >> you will find that the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastica logo. >> congressman scott's office was vandalized less than a week after he got into a heated argument about health care in a meeting. >>> another attack like the oklahoma city bombing could be a matter of time. that's what an atf agent total a civil rights group. it says anti militia governments are popping up at an alarming rate, opposing tax skbs liberal policies. the report also says others might be reacting to the country's first african-american president. but the atf agents did say there are not as many violent threats and acts right now compared to the 1990s. >>> new video shows massive mudslides and hundreds of people stranded in mountain towns. a deadly typhoon triggered mud slides and floods in china. helicopters are plucking survivors from villages. and food and water is being dropped for people waiting to be rescued. rain may ease up today, helping rescue efforts. >>> a police report shows that a famous college coach admits to having sex with a woman, accused of trying to ext
him a break. they really should give him a break. people like rush limbaugh and i cat think of the name on fox news, he really irritates me. i mean, barack obama cannot do anything, he can't even -- with all the people sittingomething critical. but i want to ask a question, sir. do you think he's going to become a great president? >> guest: it is too early to say. how can you do that? or could be a great president was something that he thought about at the earliest stages of trying to decide whether or not to run. and again this is pretty much the second chapter of the book where, you know, he and his friends are discussing what makes a good president, in his opinion the sort of mixture of the person and the time and that is why he thought ronald reagan was probably the great president and even though he opposed pretty much every single one of his policies the character, the leadership of the individual with the time and the country boss ready for that kind of change. now he went public with that approach and that observation around the time of the nevada caucus and the sout
that the president is the president of as well. how many republicans are going to say, ok, rush limbaugh, you have to get over this because he is reaching out. host: are you supporting the public option? caller: honestly, i do not understand the public option. if it makes sense, we should try a, a public option or cooperative. -- we should try it, public option or cooperative. host: thank you. next caller. caller: i worked for the post office, our insurance -- we had every time that we wanted to pick from. we chose ourselves from all over the country. i do not see why we cannot have that now for everybody. host: next call from michigan on the independent line. good morning. what do you think about president barack obama? is he compromising too much? caller: i think that have a unique perspective on this situation. i am a health care provider that happens to own his own business. i have a daughter with a pre- existing condition. i also have first-time knowledge of the single payer run system in ireland. i think that the system out there does the most to decrease the prices in health insurance, and
